  6. 6. PUBLIC SPACE AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR URBAN QUALITIES Role of public space 1.Public space accepts diversity as a norm  2. Public spaces act as cultural and social transformers of society in relation to  culture, life forming and as attractors for mix of segments of people. 3. Public spaces should be inclusive everyone. They should function as urban hubs  that ­ physically and mentally ­ connect different parts of the city and its inhabitants.

  9. 9. PUBLIC SPACE AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR URBAN QUALITIES Theoretical approach We use thoughts from urban theorists pointing to the  relation between the city, its spaces, life forming and the  body. The idea that an aesthetical and sensory oriented  approach is called for due to the new demands in the  experience city. JUUL  FROST JUUL  FROST Architects BYENS RUM 2009

High degree of material, spatial and sensory gestures both attracting, distributing and orienting the user. The  plaza allows movement across the space in any possible direction as it is accessible from various angles.   JUUL  FROST Architects
  13. 13. PUBLIC SPACE AS CATALYST FOR CHANGE DUBLIN GRAND CANAL PLAZA The use of the spatial and bodily affective shaping of the physical environment to attract, distribute and  integrate the visitor in the space. The design invites the user to integrate and perform on its stage.  JUUL  FROST Architects

PUBLIC SPACE AS A CATALYST FOR CHANGE DUBLIN GRAND CANAL PLAZA METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR URBAN QUALITIES Performativity is the inclusion of an action, a performance, an event etc. in urban space, which is intended to  in8luence – permanently or temporary ­ a given urban space. In other words performativity is to make  something happen in the urban realm.  The performative intervention can be the use of physical or social  elements or the creation of new identity giving narratives.

PUBLIC SPACE AS CATALYST FOR CHANGE PROEIXAMPLE, BARCELONA Jardins de la Torre de les Aigües is established by the public­private partnership ProEixample.  They initiated the regeneration and development of more than 40  backyards in the neighborhood, Eixample.  Each backyard has its own functions and aesthetical atmospheres. But all recreational, green semi public urban psaces developed through a parallel initiative. JUUL  FROST Architects

  20. 20. PUBLIC SPACE AS CATALYST FOR CHANGE METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR URBAN QUALITIES Performativity is the inclusion of an action, a performance, an event etc. in urban space, which is intended to in8luence –  permanently or temporary ­ other agents in urban space. In other words performativity is to affect and change matters  in the urban realm.   Parallelism is the notion of creating coherence between several places by simultaneously implementing identical  interventions in the urban fabric, physically or socially.  Area strategies covers chosen, limited districts within the city where a given theme or approach is implemented. The  goal is to apply interventions that activate the chosen area as a whole.  Mnemonics is a way to create a collective memory by visually referring to given narratives or signi8iers. Acupuncture is an accurate intervention that is capable of both activating a larger area than itself or even in8luence an  area different to the one being pierced.    JUUL | FROST Arkitekter JUUL  FROST Architects
  21. 21. PUBLIC SPACE AS CATALYST FOR CHANGE METHODS AND STRATEGIES FOR URBAN QUALITIES STRATEGIC PLANNING  We propose an integrated and holistic understanding of the complex transformation proceses in the city. Through strategic tools initiating urban processes,  A new role for the planner: a strategic and proactive coordinator of urban processes The use of urban architecture and design as strategic planning not as material development.  Thus planning is no longer a form imposed upon urban matter, but is rather strategic tool to be used in the broader  perspective of urban transformation processes.
